The police have arrested two suspects for allegedly sending threatening letters and hell notes to Government leaders, including Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam.

The Police said in a statement that the two suspects, aged 18 and 53, were arrested yesterday and that several handwritten letters, mobile phones, laptop, envelopes and hell notes were seized following their arrest.

Today newspaper which said that it received a copy of the handwritten letter reported that it was addressed to “PM Lee Hsien Loong and the other MPs” and expressed anger at the Government’s decision to redevelop the Sungei Road flea market area.

The letter, written in English and signed-off by a person who called himself ‘Eng Khoon Koh’, had two hell notes attached to it. Mr Koh Eng Khoon is the chairman of the Association for the Recycling of Second Hand Goods. Mr Koh has started various grounds-up efforts on behalf of flea market stall holders in Sungei Road. The eight decades old flea market is slated to be demolished in June to make way for new development.
